Kolkata Police uses mankading fiasco to spread message of road safety

first_imgKolkata: Kolkata Police has used the recent ‘mankad’ episode in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) to deliver the message of road safety awareness through their Facebook page.Kings XI Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin had ‘mankaded’ Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday, which has been evoking divided opinions among the cricket fraternity on social media. The “mankading” dismissal followed a batting collapse as the Rajasthan team collapsed from 108 for 1 to 170 all out and lost the match by 14 runs. It may be mentioned that Buttler was in a destructive mood during the match and had contributed 69 runs off 43 balls before being dismissed.

These creative ideas have a good impact on them as comments and shares have been flooding our Facebook page,” a senior official of KP’s Traffic department said.

The picture had “Defense should be like Pujara,” written on it. The Jaipur Police had used the image of Jasprit Bumrah bowling a no-ball to Fakhar Zaman on a billboard as a means of traffic awareness in 2017. The caption of the picture read: “Don’t cross the line. You know it can be costly.” This, however, didn’t go down well with Bumrah, who had criticised Jaipur Police for the same.last_img read more

Lawyers for disqualified pot shop applicants say process was unfair

TORONTO — A legal battle over Ontario’s licensing system for retail cannabis stores focused Wednesday on the steps taken by the province to contact a number of applicants who were later disqualified for failing to file documents by a certain date.The group of 11 applicants is challenging the rejection and disputing the fairness of the procedures involved in the lottery that has been used to grant all of Ontario’s pot shop licences.At a hearing in Toronto, the group’s lawyers argued Wednesday that under the rules set out by the provincial agency overseeing the process, those who win the chance to apply must submit certain documents within five business days once they are notified of their selection.They said an email alerting their clients of the lottery’s outcome and the application timeline did not go through, and as such, the deadline should have been recalculated based on when the message was actually delivered.The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario “just determined that the attempt-to-notify was sufficient” to trigger the countdown, which is unfair and unreasonable, attorney Michael Lacy told a three-judge panel.As a result, he argued, the commission was not entitled to disqualify the 11 applicants or to select a new slate of applicants to replace them. The group should be allowed to complete the application process and the others returned to the wait list, he said.Lawyers representing the commission, however, said the eliminated applicants were to blame for the email bouncing back since they provided the address and chose that method of communication.What’s more, Judie Im argued, the commission then followed up with telephone calls, posted the list of lottery winners online and eventually sent letters by courier. Many of the calls failed to reach the applicants and three never picked up the packages, she said.When they did receive a letter notifying them of their selection, the applicants should have seen that it was dated Aug. 21 and laid out a deadline of Aug. 28, she added.“The fault… lies with them and not the registrar,” Im said, noting none of the applicants sought to clarify the deadline or obtain an extension.Even if the commission is found to have erred in disqualifying the group, the newly chosen applicants should not be penalized for that mistake, said lawyer Robin Linley, who represents some of them.Linley said his clients have already taken steps to meet the application criteria.The dispute largely revolves over what it means to be notified, and whether delivery or receipt of the message is required, Ontario Superior Court Justice David Corbett said.Earlier this month, Corbett paused the licensing process for the latest round of cannabis stores until the case is resolved. The panel is set to present its decision on Monday.Lawyers representing the commission had contested the stay, saying it would interfere with the integrity of the lottery system. There was also opposition from lawyers representing the applicants selected to replace those eliminated.So far, there have been two rounds of the government lottery to determine who can apply to open cannabis stores. The first involved 25 spots and the second 42.Lottery winners have five business days to turn in their application, along with a $6,000 non-refundable fee and a $50,000 letter of credit.The legal challenge may affect the government’s timeline to increase the number of legal pot shops in the province.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 25, 2019.Paola Loriggio, The Canadian Press read more

Monster Pitch finalist HeroHub

This is the fourth in a series of four stories featuring the finalists of Monster Pitch, the annual student business competition hosted by the Goodman School of Business student club Brock Innovation Group. This year’s competition will be held at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre Monday, Jan. 8.Two Brock students have created a company with the goal of making a meaningful impact in the community.Chipewyan “Chip” McCrimmon, a fifth-year Political Science student with a minor in Business, and Marina Radovanovic, a fourth-year Business Communications student, came together to form HeroHub, a social enterprise designed to help make charitable efforts easier for individuals and non-profit organizations.After discovering they had a mutual passion for community involvement, the pair decided to find a cause to volunteer with together. After struggling to find information online about charity events, volunteer opportunities and in-kind donations, they realized they could make an even bigger impact by solving this problem.Armed with market research, the students have been working on their business for a year with support from BioLinc. McCrimmon was part of BioLinc’s Kick-Starting Entrepreneurship program two years ago, which taught him about what it takes to start a business and helped him build his network.McCrimmon and Radovanovic are building a website and mobile application that will house an event calendar, opportunity board and donation tool. The central hub will help community members find a suitable charity where they can donate items or time, and to help non-profit organizations promote their events as well as volunteer and job postings.“Our goal is that whether you have a vehicle or furniture to donate, or you have some extra time that you want to spend helping a charity, you will be able to go to HeroHub and find out how and where to do that,” said McCrimmon.While they are starting with the Niagara community, they have dreams of scaling their venture up to make a global impact.“Although it sounds like a cliché, we really do want to change the world,” said McCrimmon. “We want to make a big impact on our community and by helping others get involved and by helping non-profits be more efficient and find people for their opportunities, we can make a big change.”Competing at Monster Pitch will be a dream come true for McCrimmon, who has attended the competition for the past three years.“I remember sitting at the back of the crowd at Monster Pitch and being so impressed with everybody and thinking that I could never be on that stage,” he said. “I let my fear control me. I’ve made a lot of changes in my life and now my motto is to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Even two years ago, I never would have applied to Monster Pitch because I was afraid of talking in front of everybody, but I’ve had a lot of encouragement since then and have learned that you can’t be afraid of failure because it’s a huge part of success.”Monster Pitch will see four short-listed student entrepreneur groups pitch their business ideas before a panel of judges for a chance to win a funding and startup services package worth $14,000.The sold-out event is hosted by the Brock Innovation Group in partnership with the Goodman School of Business and BioLinc and is sponsored by Spark Power Corp.The judging panel includes David Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber series, and returning judges Bruce Croxon, co-host of BNN’s The Disruptors and CEO of Round 13, Deborah Rosati, corporate director and co-founder of Women Get On Board, and Jason Sparaga, co-founder and co-CEO of Spark Power Corp. and founder of Spara Capital Partners. read more

Cop Who Tackled Tennis Star James Blake Testifies That

Tennis player James Blake arrives at City Hall in New York.  (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)NEW YORK (AP) — The police officer who tackled retired tennis player James Blake in a mistaken arrest outside a Manhattan hotel testified Tuesday that he and his family have been getting death threats since the 2015 incident.Officer James Frascatore was part of an undercover operation targeting credit card fraud and mistakenly thought Blake was one of the suspects. A security video captured Frascatore tackling and handcuffing Blake, who was let go after officers realized their mistake. The mayor and the former police commissioner publicly apologized to the ex-tennis star.In his second departmental trial connected in the incident, Frascatore said he was just following orders to arrest a man who looked like Blake. He said his career had been destroyed and described the upheaval it brought to his life and family.“The best way to describe it is hell,” he said. “I had death threats coming in to my children, my wife, myself. We had to move numerous times.”Frascatore also accused Blake of creating a “false narrative about an out-of-control cop.”“He’s part black and I’m white and it turned into a racial issue,” he said.Blake’s mother is white, and his father is black. Blake has said he thought the incident was mostly about excessive force, but also about how communities of color are generally treated.In closing remarks Tuesday, prosecutor Javier Seymour said Frascatore broke department rules.At Frascatore’s first departmental trial, police watchdog lawyers said he should lose 10 vacation days as punishment for excessive force, but the police commissioner overruled that recommendation and docked him five vacations days. Blake said the punishment was too light.The second trial was initiated by allegations that Frascatore participated in the investigation and leaked a longer videotape of the incident to the media.Frascatore denied telling anyone to leak the longer tape, saying his sister-in-law gave it out in an attempt to stop the death threats. He said he was “disgusted” the NYPD didn’t release the extended video which showed him shaking hands with Blake and apologizing after the false arrest.“It was very upsetting considering only part of it had been released,” he said.Frascatore’s lawyer, Peter Brill, said the NYPD overreacted to the incident.“The department reacts by placing too much blame. He was simply doing his job.” read more

Podricks Song Is Connected to a Major Game of Thrones Prophecy

first_img ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… Stay on target Game of Thrones is known for its music moments, and Season 8, Episode 2 featured Podrick Payne, Brienne of Tarth’s squire, singing a beautiful ballad that is linked to George R.R. Martin’s books and one of the show’s most mysterious prophecies.[Editor’s note: This post contains many plot points from Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 2 and if you haven’t caught up on the series, you should stop reading this right now.]Following Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth’s emotional knighting scene, Podrick Payne showed off his tenor voice and awed audiences with a song that nodded to some of the heroes enjoying their last night on Earth. Book readers watching the show also recognized that this ballad is “Jenny’s Song,” one of the songs from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire that hasn’t been performed on the series yet, Vanity Fair reported.In the books, readers have only seen one line in the song, “High in the halls of the kings who are gone, Jenny would dance with her ghosts.” Podrick Payne’s version contains lyrics that they’ve never heard, and the song was performed by Florence + the Machine for the episode’s closing credits.Here are the full “Jenny’s Song” lyrics that Podrick Payne sings:High in the halls of the kings who are goneJenny would dance with her ghosts.The ones she had lost and the ones she had foundAnd the ones who had loved her the most.The ones who’d been gone for so very longShe couldn’t remember their namesThey spun her around on the damp cold stoneSpun away all her sorrow and painAnd she never wanted to leaveNever wanted to leave.Never wanted to leave.Never wanted to leave.Never wanted to leave.Never wanted to leave.“Jenny’s Song” isn’t only a pre-battle ballad: It might be tied to one of Game of Thrones’ most unresolved prophecies, which involves Jon Snow and his true Targaryen heritage, Polygon noted. In George R.R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords, the Ghost of High Heart requests that Arya Stark sing her “my Jenny’s song,” which causes the old woman to weep.Here’s where it gets tricky: Jenny of Oldstones, a reported descendent of the First Men married Duncan Targaryen. After some trouble, Jenny of Oldstones was accepted into court following her marriage with Duncan Targaryen, and she brought a woman she was friends with, who was also known as a woods witch that might have been one of the Children of the Forest or a dwarf.Unfortunately, Duncan Targaryen, and most likely Jenny of Oldstones perished in the Tragedy of Summerhall, an accident that might have been caused by introducing dragons back to the Seven Kingdoms. Even though many people died, it is believed that the woods witch might have survived the fire and she might be the same old woman who asks Arya Stark to sing her “my Jenny’s song.” This same woods witch reportedly prophesied that The Prince Who Was Promised would hail from the line of Prince Aerys and Princess Rhaella, also known as Jon Snow’s grandparents. “Jenny’s Song” could be a reference to the Prince Who Was Promised prophecy and who the saviors of Westeros might be.Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 airs on HBO on Sunday, April 27.More on Geek.com:‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 2 Recap: Drink With Me to Days Gone ByFirst Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 2 Photos‘Game of Thrones’ Writer: It Was ‘Tough’ to Reveal Jon Snow’s True Heritagelast_img read more

Reports of Continued Distribution to US Military Were Premature

first_imgPublishers are instructed to hold all product directed to U.S. military and to await further developments. I don’t have a complete new post today, just an update—but it’s an important one.My last post reported that PMG, distributor to the U.S. military and other locations overseas, had closed its doors for its military, South American, and Hawaii business. The important U.S. military portion of the business was said to be taken over by TNG (formerly The News Group).Today we hear that the agreement with TNG has not, in fact, materialized. As of this morning it appears that there is no finalized agreement to ship magazines to the U.S. military overseas, not with TNG, not with anyone.last_img read more

ASD asks state legislators for new education funding formula

first_imgThe Anchorage School District made their case for increasing state education funding to legislators during a luncheon Thursday. With the current funding formula, the district projects they will cut 720 jobs over the next three years. Class sizes will increase to about 10 more students per class than evidence-based research recommends.School board president Eric Croft says the Base Student Allocation funding formula needs to change.“I’ve had legislators say, ‘Why do we have to have this same debate every year? Why is there another $22 million dollar deficit in the Anchorage School District’s budget?’ We just responded, without inflation-proofing of the formula, that discussion is going to happen every year,” Croft told the crowd, which included state and municipal lawmakers.Currently inflation in Anchorage is at 3 percent.Croft also wants the legislature to consider using the cost-of-living in the Mat-Su Valley as the base for the school funding formula, not Anchorage. Preliminary ASD studies show that the cost of living is lower in the Mat-Su Valley than in Anchorage, mostly because of the price of housing. If the Valley is used as the base, the formula would be adjusted to account for higher costs in Anchorage and increase the funding for the city’s schools. ASD is asking for a more formal cost-of-living study from the legislature.Anchorage Rep. Andy Josephson, a Democrat, agrees that school funding must be a priority over other projects. He explains that HB 278 requires the legislature to hire a consultant to look at the base funding formula, but he’s not sure it will help the district’s problems.“I think the net result is going to be, it doesn’t change the number of brick and mortar buildings you need, the number of personnel you need, so I question whether we’re going to achieve a whole lot doing that.”Rep. Harriet Drummond, a Democrat from Anchorage, says she and the other Democrats plan to look at education funding first this session.“Education is my first priority. I think we fund education first, early in the session, then everything else follows.”Drummond says she echos the district’s concerns about how the cost of housing is impacting how the district can attract and retain employeesASD also wants the legislature to consider the trickle down effect of losing 720 jobs in the community.last_img read more

Pompeo calls on Imran Khan to act against terrorists

first_imgMike Pompeo, Imran KhanUS Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pressed new Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan in a phone call to take “decisive action” against “terrorists” operating in Pakistan, the State Department said Thursday.Pompeo wished Khan success in the wake of his being sworn in as prime minister in Islamabad Saturday after a victory in national elections on 25 July, said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.”Secretary Pompeo expressed his willingness to work with the new government towards a productive bilateral relationship,” Nauert said in a statement.He also “raised the importance of Pakistan taking decisive action against all terrorists operating in Pakistan and its vital role in promoting the Afghan peace process.”Washington has pressured Pakistan for years to crack down on the branches of the Taliban and the notorious Haqqani network operating the country, both of which have been designated as terror groups by the United States.Ties with the US cooled in January when president Donald Trump accused Pakistan of “lies” and “duplicity” in the war on terror, suspending military assistance worth hundreds of millions of dollars.Khan has raised concerns that he will remain tolerant of the groups, willing to hold talks with the militants and having sought support in the election from religious hardliners.Before the election he repeatedly blamed Pakistan’s participation in the US-led anti-terror campaign for the surge in terrorism on home soil over the last decade.last_img read more

GOP Efforts To Repeal Obamacare May Be Failing But Theyre Still Affecting

first_imgJorge Sanhueza-Lyon/KUTNora Chovanec canceled her health plan under Obamacare because of uncertainty about the law’s future.Nora Chovanec showed off the chickens in her backyard last March while talking about a newly proposed Republican health care bill to replace Obamacare.The 29-year-old was on a health care plan through the online marketplace created by Obamacare. It allows people who don’t get insurance through an employer to buy a plan on their own.Under the GOP plan proposed at the time, Chovanec was poised to get some more money.“I, as a young healthy person, would actually benefit,” she said. “This plan would save me money on my taxes at the end of the year.”But Chovanec said the plan didn’t sit right with her because older and sicker people would be forced to pay more.The bill eventually died in Congress. And so did another Republican plan. Chovanec said she’s been watching each of the bills closely.“I definitely have been worried this year,” she said, “because I didn’t know if I was going to continue to have health insurance, if the whole marketplace was going to disappear, if they were going to change it, and I was going to have really terrible health insurance or my premium was going to skyrocket.”The latest Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is unlikely to pass at this point. With a deadline at the end of the week, the bill, known as Graham-Cassidy, is three votes short. It’s the third major GOP effort this year to get rid of Obamacare.The possibility that Obamacare could be repealed has affected Texans like Chovanec. In fact, the uncertainty made her think it would be better to get rid of her Obamacare plan.“Actually, just two weeks ago I made the decision to go on my husband’s health insurance,” she said.Chovanec said she’s lucky to have that option to fall back on, but the decision wasn’t easy.For one thing, her premiums under her husband’s insurance are more expensive. Under her Obamacare plan, she paid $180 a month. Now she pays $270 a month.More importantly, Chovanec said, she didn’t want to leave Obamacare because of what it meant.“When I called to cancel my insurance – even though I’m going to get better health insurance that’s more expensive – I still felt sad,” she said. “I felt sad in leaving this kind of larger, in my mind, social good. And so, I didn’t want to have to jump ship. I felt like I was forced into it, because I didn’t know whether I was going to have insurance in a couple of months.” Fingers crossedThe feeling is shared by many people watching the health care debate. No one really knows what their choices will be next year.That’s been a problem for Victoria Tisor, who also talked to KUT back in March.Tisor, 60, couldn’t find a plan she could afford in the Obamacare marketplace, so she decided to risk it.“I went without health care insurance this year,” she said. She joined a wellness center and started an exercise routine. “[I] focused on my health, instead of my sickness.”Tisor said everything is working out fine – for now.“Where I am vulnerable is if an accident happens, something catastrophic,” she said. “I wouldn’t be covered. So, of course I’m following all the bills that are coming up and what is going on.”So far, Tisor said, none of those Republican repeal bills have been good news for her situation. But she said she hasn’t given up completely on finding a plan.She said if Obamacare is still around during open enrollment in November, she plans to shop around.“I am going to look again, you know?” Tisor said. “And if I feel like I can find an insurance policy that I can afford that covers something, then I’ll probably make that decision.”In a few years Tisor will have her own backup plan: She’ll be eligible for Medicare. Sharecenter_img Single-payer health careBoth Chovanec and Tisor said they were encouraged by at least one health care bill that was introduced in Congress this year.“My little bit of hope, though, is that maybe with all this insanity, we’ll get a national single-payer health care system,” Chovanec said, referring to a bill introduced by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.Tisor said she’s excited that single payer is being talked about, again. She said she’s been following the issue since the 1990s.“Single payer would obviously be more cost-effective for the entire country,” she said. “I mean, that would be the best.”For now, of course, a single-payer bill faces even worse odds in Congress than any of the Republican bills that have been proposed so far.last_img read more

Weapons shipment found at Cancun airport

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — An on site police dog is responsible for the discovery of a weapons shipment that was being sent through the Cancun International Airport.Several boxes of 9-millimeter cartridges were sniffed out by one of the airport’s dogs.

Working conveniently from within a radiology information system (RIS), the application transmits reports over the Internet to a medical practice’s static IP address using secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) to ensure data safety. Referring physicians can configure their EMRs to automatically download the data to the appropriate patient file.MedicsConnect supports a radiology practice’s marketing efforts by providing an important extra level of customer service. Reliably and seamlessly, it offers referring physicians convenient access to reports, while eliminating the costs to radiologists of implementing customized HL7 interfaces to accept inbound data at key referrers.“MedicsConnect is almost effortless from the radiologist’s point of view. In just a few mouse clicks, completed reports are transmitted with the highest level of security in a format any referring physician’s system can read and archive,” said David Barzillai, president of ADS. “Finally, sharing electronic radiology reports really is that simple.”Barzillai points out that with MedicsConnect, communicating electronic reports is as streamlined as faxing and as important a development as automated faxing was 25 years ago. The tool makes it practical and cost-effective for radiologists to provide all the advantages of EHR-compatible radiology reports to referring practices of any size, even to independent practitioners.MedicsConnect comes integrated into the ADS MedicsRIS and is also available as a stand-alone application for integration into any radiology practice’s RIS solution.For more information: www.adsc.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | July 31, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Solution Improves Clinical Trial Recruitment Clinical trials are a critical tool for getting new treatments to people who need them, but research shows that… read morelast_img read more

Under fire for data breach Obama personnel chief steps down

first_imgIn the OPM case, the data stolen by hackers included criminal, financial, health, employment and residency histories, as well as information about families and acquaintances. The second, larger attack affected not only applicants for security clearances but also nearly 2 million of their spouses, housemates and others.Numerous U.S. lawmakers who have been briefed by federal investigators have said emphatically that China was responsible, and even National Intelligence Director James Clapper has said publicly that China is the “leading suspect.”Yet even as Archuleta stepped down, the White House declined to point the finger at Beijing, reflecting the diplomatic sensitivities involved in such an accusation against a global economic superpower. Obama’s cybersecurity coordinator, Michael Daniel, said cryptically, “Just because we’re not doing public attribution does not mean that we’re not taking steps to deal with the matter.”U.S. officials have said the hackers do not appear to have used the data since the theft. The White House said it has stepped up cybersecurity efforts, and in early June government employees received notice that OPM would offer credit-monitoring services and identity-theft insurance to those affected. On Thursday, Archuleta had rebuffed demands that she resign, declaring she was “committed to the work that I am doing.” But her continued tenure at the agency grew untenable as calls from lawmakers — including members of Obama’s own party — mushroomed. On Friday morning, she came to the White House to personally submit her resignation to Obama.He named Beth Cobert, currently deputy director for management at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, to step in as acting director at OPM.“It’s quite clear that new leadership, with a set of skills and experiences that are unique to the urgent challenges that OPM faces, are badly needed,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.Archuleta’s resignation came one day after the administration disclosed that the number of people affected by the federal data breach was far greater than previously known.
